Regarding signal issues on 27W remember we are in the spring equinox. We have been losing it at about 14.15 every day in The Canaries

Thank you,@William.I saw the map but I wanted to be sure that the footprint would be better on my area.Intel 907 has poor coverage on my area.Only a few enthusiasts catch this satellite. It seems Intel 901 will please many in my region if the current footprint does not change.That's why I asked you.
Regards

For other members of the forum to be aware of the cause (for a better understanding of the topic), I wrote on the meaning of all the below, without using technical words ...

Because I saw activity on this topic I documented on the subject ... it is a system (a vehicle) that can correct the orbit of a satellite (when it is no longer good), for that satellite to work more time than the expected lifetime.

It is worth mentioning that the repair vehicle uses its own engines when it adjusts the satellite's orbit and does not fuel the satellite's engines.

A satellite was chosen (Intelsat 901) ... the satellite was launched in 2001 ... with a life expectancy of 13 years ... and now in 2020 the orbit has been corrected ... that, its lifetime, will be until 2025 ... what I didn't understand, the moving vehicle, MEV-1 (Mission Extension Vehicle-1), will station with the satellite ... or place the satellite in the correct orbit. and then go on to make other orbit corrections to other satellites ?! ... I understood that it will station with the satellite and correct during its operation its orbit, so that it is correct.
